Avenging Highlander
3 February 2006 | by zeppo-2See all my reviews

Better than average entry in this long running series as it was written by Brian Clemens. Famous for scripting many UK cult series favourites in the Golden Age of British adventure programmes. Most well known been all the incarnations of the 'Avengers.'

This episode has all the trademarks of his work, the quirkiness and off kilter style so beloved in his previous scripts. The villain here rides a vintage motorbike and dresses in goggles like a rider from the 1920's. The story itself is more familiar with a copycat serial killer imitating the murders of an Immortal that Duncan MacLeod encountered decades ago. Protecting a friend of Tessa's who has been attacked brings him into contact with said killer and you can figure the rest out from there!

Interesting for the reason that supporting characters,Tessa and Ritchie are given more to do here and get a share of screen and action time. For a change it's Duncan who is more in the background and given less to do except for some pointless running about.
